Lamps Plus purchases $7 million warehouse to speed up fulfillment


Lamps Plus is taking steps to meet its shoppers’ increasing demand.

The lighting retailer is expanding its warehouse presence in Redlands, Calif., with the acquisition of a 57,000-sq.-ft. building. The new warehouse is located next to Lamps Plus’ existing 800,000-sq.-ft. facility, which opened in 2007.

Lamps Plus acquired the new building, which was built in 2006, from Precision Pet Products for $7.1 million. The new depot will augment the company’s existing warehouse storage space and shipping lines, and provide storage for lighting, home décor and furniture.

“With the success of our online and store sales, we needed to expand our presence to rapidly meet customers’ increasingly faster shipping time ex-pectations,” said Dennis Swanson, CEO of Lamps Plus. “Redlands has solidified its reputation as a premier location for warehouse facilities with a number of major U.S. corporations, also operating in the area and by of-fering an outstanding skilled workforce.”

The retailer will add 50 new associates to operate the new facility, the company said.
